FILMEU European Universities Alliance for Film and Media Arts

brings together four European Higher Education Institutions:

The consortium integrates four institutions with strong expertise in Film and Media Arts education, a common internationalization ambition, and a long track record of past collaborations that include more than a decade of expertise in the development of European joint projects, including E+ Knowledge Alliances, Strategic Partnerships and “Erasmus Mundus” Joint Master Degrees, besides other joint education and research projects, in order to foster the excellence and attractiveness of the European Higher Education Area.

FILMEU is focused on long-term strategic collaboration and our mission is to develop a European University that is a model for European collaboration and integration in the fields of the Arts and the creative industries. Our mission is to create a European University that will greatly contribute to Europe’s leading role as a provider of education and research in the creative and artistic areas. Our mission is to configure a European University that fosters the concretization of the knowledge triangle in these fields by contributing to the ongoing structural, economic and material reconfigurations of the cultural and creative industries.

Our Vision

The institutions that integrate FILMEU share the belief that cinema and media arts lay at the centre of social transformations and economic growth which the creative sector can potentially impel if proper collaborative networks are successfully erected in Europe.

Building on more than a decade of successful cooperation, these four institutions envision positioning themselves as key players in driving education, innovation and research in Film and Media Arts within the European Higher Education Area and in promoting the central role the creative and cultural industries can, and should have, in our societies.

FILMEU aspires to build on the Alliance members’ previous expertise in several education and research initiatives, namely in the joint design and implementation of the 4 existing European Joint Master Degrees (EMJMD) “Erasmus Mundus” in the areas of Film and Artistic creativity, and in the joint development of the knowledge triangle linking research, teaching and industry, in order to achieve a high level of integration of its members’ policies and actions though fostering:

  • The ability of the Alliance members to educate future generations of creative artists, armed with critical and creative skills, who are able and willing to contribute to a multicultural, multilingual and inclusive Europe which is open to the world;
  • The societal impact of the creative and cultural industries at local, regional and international level via the implementation and dissemination of jointly developed educational and research activities that integrate the constant production and dissemination of relevant cultural and artistic outputs useable at different levels across the knowledge triangle, while engaging different societal stakeholders;
  • The expansion and improvement of the joint research capacity of the partnered institutions and their ability to disseminate with greater impact the creative outcomes resulting from the education and research endeavours they support, further reinforcing the prominence of artistic research in the European Higher Education Area;
  • The development and implementation of new and original joint programmes, namely at Master and PhD level, with strong mobility features and a focus on innovative challenge-based pedagogical and didactic approaches that cover all domains of the knowledge triangle;
  • The implementation and sharing of common physical and digital structures and services, allowing for the streamlined management of mobility processes, the automatic recognition of competences and qualifications, the provision of virtual and collaborative learning spaces, and the development of innovative research activities;
  • The capacitation and competitiveness of the HEI that integrate the Alliance via the development of common quality assurance procedures, in accordance with the Standards and guidelines for quality assurance in the European Higher Education Area (ESG), the qualification of staff, and the implementation of common governance and management structures that evenly assure the participation of students;
  • The institutional capacitation of the alliance via the design and implementation of a common branding strategy, common recruitment of students and staff procedures, a joint office for student recruitment and support, and common mechanisms for staff evaluation and talent retention, namely via a jointly designed tenure program;
  • The Alliance members’ ability to better respond to the challenges which the creative and cultural industries face, namely in terms of coping with the uncertainties that these fields experience in many of the involved countries, and the precarious nature of the permanently transitional work they support;
  • Society’s ability to leverage the creative and cultural industries as a means to address some of the greatest challenges with which we are currently confronted;
  • The capacity of the Alliance members to directly apply the culture, practices, processes, and technologies of the digital era to society’s raised expectations on how its cultural industries, and in particular cinema, act as agents of economic, social and cultural change in the public sphere, particularly given that the symbolic content they convey plays an increasing role in the ongoing societal transformations;
  • The positioning of Europe as the main global provider of education in Film and Media Arts, able to attract enthusiastic and engaged students and researchers from all over the world.

The FILMEU Summit was the perfect setting for different reasons. Since LUCA is a multicampus school, it was the first time the different LUCA participants came together physically and therefore could better discuss the future impact of the project on LUCA as a whole. The Summit made clear that the opportunities for education and research of the ERASMUS FILMEU project and the HORIZON FILMEU-RIT are endless and that every participant in the room can contribute on different levels. Moreover, the summit showed a lot of people, students and staff, very passionate about the future collaborations.
